Crazy Busy & Crazy Stressed

One of the books I read this summer is Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung.  It’s been about a month since I finished it so the following thoughts are what I remember, but not quotes from the book.

Some researchers interviewed 1000+ elementary children and asked what they wished most about their parents.  What do you think they said?  None of them said they wished for more time with their parents. Rather, they said they wished their parents were less STRESSED.  DeYoung says our children are suffering from secondhand STRESS.

So maybe it would be a great idea to hear what Dr. Charles Lowery has to say to us in the current series at Grace Fellowship called STRESSED.  With so many STRESSED OUT parents – I thought it might be worth reminding you to consider being a part of this incredible teaching series.
